In 11g, the "crs" and ASM are one install and the rdbms binaries are another install - unlike 10g where the ASM and RDBMS could be the same set of binaries - you need to rethink your binaries. In 11g, the "grid" OCR/VOTE are actually stored in ASM not as a separate device as in 10g. There are a lot of differences. The installation is also very different in how it does the install and how it does things like the "cluster alias (aka SCAN VIP)" and you will want to know how to use the SCAN.

See the master upgrade note: 1152016.1

Due to some nasty little gotcha's when doing the database upgrade, I would go directly to

Before you EVER do an upgrade, test, test test and test some more.

Depending on your size, it may be just as easy to do this via export/ import to new hardware - again depending on how big it is... 11g is a VERY different beast than 9iRAC or even 10gRAC Received on Fri Mar 11 2011 - 20:39:05 CST
